On Saturday a story about prominent singers performing for Libya’s Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi and his family for large sums of cash.

Minister Louis Farrakhan is raising eyebrows over recent comments he made about pop singer Rihanna.
The Nation of Islam Minister spoke Sunday at the annual Saviors’ Day celebration at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois and spoke out on a number of topics including the pop star.

Rihanna on the other hand was blasted for her “filthy” performances and anyone who enjoyed such antics were “swine.”
The Tribune reports that the Minister also gave the title to gays and lesbians.
